Mini Meatzas

These snack-sized mini meatzas are an awesome snack-sized way to get some bioavailable protein first thing.  They make for an easy portable work lunch or snack when the hungries hit. 

They will empower you to leverage the satiety-boosting power of protein with a pizza-like taste.  The photo here is with kangaroo patties, but any lean mince will be great!  

The lean burger patties will give you heaps of hunger crushing bioavailable protein, along with iron, potassium, selenium, zinc, choline and vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12

Spinach boosts vitamin A and vitamin K1, tomato lifts the vitamin C, mushrooms add some texture and additional minerals while a few olives bring an Italian pizza feel.  

If you’re not as focused on fat loss, you can top with your favourite cheese (e.g. feta or mozzarella) for a bit more grain-free pizza decadence.
